Culture and Customs of Croatia

ABC-CLIO, 2011 - Broj stranica: 239

An expert guide to the present-day cultural life of Croatia and how it has been influenced by the nation's tumultuous past.

Culture and Customs of Croatia offers an expert insider's look at a Balkan nation which, for the first time since the 12th century, is free to draw on its own traditions to determine its political, philosophical, and cultural identity.

Culture and Customs of Croatia provides a comprehensive overview of Croatian art and culture with an emphasis on the historical factors contributing to contemporary Croatian life. An in-depth exploration of the country's past lays the groundwork for a discussion of a number of current issues, including progress towards EU membership, the expanding role of the Catholic Church, preservation of the country's World Heritage Sites, the growing popularity of the nation's Adriatic coastline as a beach vacation destination, and the complex, still reverberating legacy of the former Yugoslavia.

* Includes a chronology of important historical and cultural milestones beginning with the arrival of the Romans through the present day, with an emphasis on the events of the Homeland War and the founding of an independent Croatian state

* Presents photographs of historic and contemporary architecture, landscapes, markets and foods, traditional and contemporary dress, sporting events, and more
